Last Weekend's Painting Project

Oh my goodness.... I am so glad this is not an every year project!!!! We stained the deck last weekend and by the time we were finished, we were pooped! If I could have played "Tom Sawyer", believe me I would have. I kept trying to make it look fun for the neighborhood kids, but they didn't buy it. Guess they have hear that good ole' Mark Twain story before... We keep talking about replacing the deck with that composite stuff so we will never have to worry with it again, but somehow we never get beyond the talking stage. Phew, were we ever hot and tired when it was over but it is done for another year. I think next time I see my dearest dragging out the buckets and brushes I will make a quick trip to Home Depot and pick up some brochures ---!
Oh, by the way, look closely and you can see my sweet girl Suki on the patio below!

WOW, Martha, what a job!! I really dread jobs that big & when they are done I always swear I will hire it done next time. When next time comes back around I find I am to cheap/frugal to hire what I can do myself!! :-) LOL!
Have a Great Day & Rest for Awhile!!

What a lovely deck. Don't you just wish you could wiggle your nose and things would be done instantly.

We are enjoyed our evening meals on the deck every night. The purple martins come just at sundown for their supper of gnats and other insects and it is delightful to watch them. Wish you could all come and sit with us!
